When your child's condition requires hospitalization, the full-time, inpatient pediatric experts at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU will supervise and coordinate all aspects of the care continuously from admission to discharge.
These experts, or hospitalists, only treat patients in the hospital setting, so they can provide parents with timely updates on their child's condition, and work closely with the primary care physician to ensure appropriate followup treatment.
They also work closely with the pediatric emergency department physicians and medical and surgical subspecialists to bring CHoR's full resources to bear on treating children of all ages with both common and complex medical issues.
